Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium is known to produce a nail-biting contest, but South Africa vs England was nowhere close to it, though, it had fireworks aplenty.
South Africa posted a mammoth 399 runs total, riding on the back of massive knocks from Hendricks, van der Dussen, Klassen, and Marco Jansen. The abovementioned batters took on England’s bowling unit and tormented them for every loose delivery they bowled throughout the innings.
After losing Quinton de Kock early in the innings, Reeza Hendricks (85) and Rassie van der Dussen (60) stitched a 125-run partnership for the second wicket. Later the baton was passed on to Aiden Markram and Heinrich Klassen, who quickly scored runs and put South Africa on a ramp for a gigantic total.
In the process, Heinrich Klassen completed his century, while Markram was dismissed after playing 42-run innings. To finish things off on a high for South Africa, pacer Marco Jansen played a knock to cherish for a lifetime as he scored 75 runs just off 42 deliveries. Jansen’s knock aided South Africa in posting 399 runs on the board, which was going to be a herculean task for England to conquer.
It required a lion-hearted effort from the defending champions, England to compete against such a big total. However, it was just not meant to be England’s day in the business.
Not a single batter from the top and middle-order could show some resistance and looked threatening. England, under pressure, lost wickets in clusters right from the start of the innings. England were 8 down at the score of 100 runs.
Late in the innings, Mark Wood (43) and Gus Atkinson (35) tried to reduce the defeat margin by stitching a partnership of 70 runs. But as it looked right from the start, South Africa prevailed in the contest by a long way and handed England a humiliating defeat by 229 runs.
This defeat will hurt England a lot as it has dented its chances of storming into the top four in the ICC World Cup 2023 Points Table. Moreover, England’s net run rate has gone for a deep dive following the loss.
